Invisible Illusion

Invisible Illusion
Form: Cyhydedd Fer Sonnet

I wish you knew how I love you
That you’re the light that sees me through
You’re the reason I breathe each day
And I love you in every way
But love means nothing to your heart
For such things you are far too smart
Instead, you want the shiny things
A wedding day with golden rings
And a dress in pure satin white
The grandiose your heart’s delight

A wedding but no marriage
I’m just the horse and carriage

As from my soul you freely take
There’s nothing left but my heartbreak
I wish you knew how much I care
But I may as well not be there
